Commentary on Van Accident on Jim Miller at Samuell in Dallas

Anytime authorities bring up alcohol, it's important to take it seriously. Authorities usually do, but there is often something they still overlook. Many accidents like this involve people who were illegally over-served by a local bar. Why exactly does that matter?

Simply put, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Not only can this help to hold them accountable, it can work toward giving victims and families much needed assistance. It's unclear if anything like that happened here, but it's more than worth a closer look.
